Provizio, a mix hardware and software startup with innovation to enhance vehicle security, has actually closed a seed investment round of$6.2 million. Investors consist of Bobby Hambrick (the founder of Autonomous Things); the creators of Movidius; the European Development Council (EIC); ACT Venture Capital.

The start-up has a “five-dimensional” sensory platform that– it says– views, predicts and avoids car accidents in real time and beyond the line-of-sight. Its “Accident Avoidance Technology Platform” combines proprietary vision sensing units, machine learning and radar with ultra-long range and foresight abilities to prevent crashes at high speed and in all weather, says the business. The Provizio team is comprised of experts in robotics, AI and vision and radar sensing unit advancement.

Barry Lunn, CEO of Provizio stated: “One point 3 five road deaths to absolutely no drives everything we do at Provizio. We have actually assembled an unbelievable group that is growing daily. AI is the future of automobile accident avoidance and Provizio 5D radars with AI on-the-edge are the primary step towards that objective.”

Involved in Provizio is Dr. Scott Thayer and Prof. Jeff Mishler, formally of Carnegie Mellon robotics, famous for developing early self-governing innovations for Google / Waymo, Argo, Aurora and Uber.
